Speaking after receiving his award in the Netherlands as the best goalkeeper in the Dutch league, 21-year-old Ajax Amsterdam debunked claims that he turned down a summon to play for Cameroon.
Talking to our colleagues of Fox Sports, Andre Onana gave his own part of the story regarding what was said by Coach Hugo Broos to the press.
Hear him: “I never said I do not want to be called to the national team. It’s complicated because there are people who say anything.
I spoke with the coach; he told me he will not call me. But after he goes to the press conference and said something else.
You have discussions with the coach, but he publishes something else to be able to discredit certain players because you do not agree with his way of thinking or with his words.
It is complicated. It’s my country. It’s been three years that I have been there, but didn’t play. I never complained. Why will I complain today?”
Onana join the line of players who have accused Broos of saying the wrong thing after a talk with them.
